I was never a huge fan of retouched images in the sense of making everything correct and perfect. I think it's boring. For me, it drags the life out of a photograph, especially if it's a portrait or a fashion shot.
I like to embark with the person I photograph on a journey, where we explore each other, our taste, our sense of humour and of having fun. Having fun should be a pretty big factor in life and in work as well. The magic of the moment, You know, doing something silly, come up with something that's a bit weird, that looks a bit strange.
I love imperfectness. Also in the photograph itself, unsharpness, motion blurr, grain, all that adds to a personal touch, in my opinion, gives soul to an image. Those moments were image-making, art, emotions and real life touch and create something raw, something unique.
Very important for me is a clear style. Look at seven of my images and know, as a client, what You get. Don't ask me to do something different. What You see is what You get.
In art, fashion, literature, even cooking, some people will love what you do, while others will say it's fucking terrible.
That's all part of the game, the playground of creation. Don't stop. Keep rolling.
